Smile Makeovers at Heninger Dental
What Are Smile Makeovers?
Dr. Heninger is a cosmetic dentist who offers smile makeovers. No one is born with a perfect smile, which is why when you see someone that has straight, attractive, white teeth, it’s usually because they’ve had a smile makeover. A smile makeover goes beyond responding to dental problems as they arise. Smile makeovers are comprehensive plans with a cosmetic dentist that are uniquely suited to individual patients’ own facial features and aesthetic preferences. If you live in Orem, UT or the surrounding areas, we look forward to serving you.
What Is Included in a Smile Makeover?
A smile makeover combines a variety of cosmetic dental procedures, including:
There are many different ways to whiten your teeth. Dr. Heninger recommends using simple whitening trays because of the quality of whitening and the low cost compared with other methods, as well as the convenience of being able to do it at home.
We place a whitening gel in a custom-fitted tray that fits perfectly over your teeth. As the peroxide in the gel breaks down, hydroxyradicals help whiten your teeth by removing stains. Unlike whitening strips, this process whitens all your natural teeth and may contain ingredients intended to provide maximum comfort.
Veneers are a dependable, affordable solution to imperfect smiles. They are thin, tooth-colored porcelain shells that cover your natural teeth. Long-lasting and natural-looking, they can protect your teeth from further damage and give you the beautiful smile you desire.
Dental bonding is a procedure in which a tooth-colored resin (a type of durable plastic) is applied to the tooth and hardened with a special light, which ultimately “bonds” the material to the tooth to restore or improve a person’s smile. Bonding is done to repair a decayed, chipped, fractured, discolored tooth. We provide cosmetic bonding to help solve these small issues that will pop up from time to time.
Crowns are made from different types of material. Early in dentistry, they were made from metals like stainless steel. Here at Heninger Dental, we use porcelain crowns. The reason that we recommend porcelain is because of its strength and cosmetic appeal. Porcelain provides a better color match than other materials. It is also better for those who have metal allergies.
While some minor alignment issues or gaps between teeth can be corrected with veneers or dental bonding, problems like crowding or a bad bite will likely need orthodontic treatment to correct. We can treat orthodontic problems at Heninger Dental with clear aligners, Invisalign, or lingual braces, so nobody will even notice you’re receiving your treatment until they spot your straighter teeth!
What Is the First Step?
Communication is vitally important in the smile makeover process, which is why at the first consultation we will listen intently to what you want to accomplish. We want to know what you would like and what you want for your smile. Once you’ve shared with us your goals, we will prepare a plan for treatment. A cosmetic dentist like Dr. Heninger offers an amazing array of lifelike tooth restorations and treatments.
